Although referenda for operating and projects are fairly new to Indiana, unlike other States, Ice Miller has worked hard to be seen as a leader in providing legal advice to governmental entities, especially school corporations which are considering such ballot initiatives. 

In many cases, we work with our clients for months or years to prepare for a referendum to try to ensure the best chance for success.  We know that these elections are costly in time, human and political capital, emotion and money.  

We have worked with the vast majority of school corporations who have considered or run a referendum campaign in the state of Indiana.  With each campaign, whether for operating or a capital project, we gain experiences and insights.

Ice Miller has shared some of its knowledge and experience with organizations who are important to our governmental clients such as:

  • Indiana Association of School Business Officials Annual Meetings
  • Indiana Association of School Business Officials Certification Classes
  • Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents
  • Indiana School Boards Association
  • FAIR
  • Superintendent classes taught at such Universities as Purdue, Indiana, Indiana State, Ball State and Wesleyan
  • Indiana Association of Cities and Towns
  • Association of Indiana Counties

Since 2008, Ice Miller has worked with 49 governmental entities on referenda.
